Former Coleraine wingeer Stephen Dooley has signed for Cork City.

The 24-year-old winger made fourteen league appearances for Derry City last season, scoring twice.

Speaking to, he said that he is looking forward to moving to Leeside to join John Caulfield’s side: “I’m very excited, it’s a new challenge for me and I am looking forward to getting started.”

“A few players have come in and a few have left, but the base from the last couple of seasons is still there and they have done very well. City have come second twice and hopefully, with a few additions, we can push all the way.”

“I just want to nail down a starting place and, hopefully, contribute as much as I can to the team. I want to get a good pre-season under my belt, get in as good shape as I can and take it from there. The team has been right up there for the last two seasons, so there is no reason why we shouldn’t be looking to finish first this year; there’s no reason why this team can’t do that.”
